Co-conspirator’s statements

CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether the co-conspirator’s out of court statements were subject to the right of confrontation?    

This case presented the question of whether a testimonial statement of a non-testifying co-conspirator is subject to the right of confrontation?  Defendant’s co-conspirator made testimonial statements during police questioning.  The Minnesota Supreme Court held that:  (1) an out of court testimonial statement made by a co-conspirator who does not testify at trial is subject to a Confrontation Clause analysis.

State v. Sutter, A19-1045, Minnesota Supreme Court.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
